On-Communications Buys Redkite's Infrastructure
By: MarkJ - 19 December, 2007 (1:18 PM)

On-Communications has today announced the purchase of RedKite's London and Oxford based fixed wireless broadband access (FWA) infrastructure from CI-Net. The group hopes to expand upon the system and make RedKite's service into a wholesale product:

On-Communications, the UKs leading FWA service provider, has bought the RedKite network FWA assets from CI-Net, a leading UK wide area networking services provider. Moving forwards, On-Communications will provide CI-Net with wholesale FWA services, not only from the RedKite assets it has acquired, but also from the rest of its fast growing UK FWA network.

Ian Roberts, the Chief Executive, On-Communications, commented: The industry is reaching a tipping point. Demand for FWA broadband connectivity is growing fast and there are a number of developments running in parallel that are going to move FWA into mainstream consciousness. But building a successful, carrier class FWA service is non- trivial, both in terms of capital requirements and expertise. Fortunately, it is exactly what we do.

We have the right team, the right partners, the right technology and the right model and are already talking to other FWA operators in the UK. From the outset, we planned to build capacity fast as FWA is a network infrastructure that rewards scale. CI-Nets FWA assets further extend our market leading network, while providing revenues from delivering wholesale services. Expect more such announcements soon.

We look forward to providing CI-Net and its customers access to the UKs leading FWA network.
